A gift-wrapped TV.

If you didn't buy a new TV during Black Friday or Cyber Monday, you may be wondering whether you missed your chance to get a great deal on a new set.

We've been scouring the ads and online promotions for holiday TV deals, and the good news is that a number of sets are still being offered at or near their Black Friday and Cyber Monday prices, or the prices offered on a newer sales day called Green Monday that took place Dec. 10. Lots of sets are a bit more expensive but still cheaper than they were before the late-November sales started.

Some TVs will get even cheaper in the days before Christmas and then again in the weeks leading up to the Super Bowl in early February. So don't feel pressured to get a set (unless you really need to replace your current one) just because you think there won't be good deals later.

We'll be updating this list periodically, so check back for the latest sales. Note that prices at this time of year are volatile, so the offers you see in stores or online may bedifferent from what's listed here.

TV Deals on Smaller TVs

32-Inch Sharp 720p TV, $120 at Best Buy
This is the Sharp LC-32Q3170U, a basic HD set. It was recently a doorbuster special as part of Best Buy's 20 Days of Deals promotion, for $90. We saw the similar-sounding Sharp LC-32Q3180U at BJ's during Black Friday for $100. 

32-Inch Insignia 720p Amazon Fire TV Edition Smart TV, $130 at Best Buy
This is the Insignia NS-32DF310NA19, a model that's selling for $150 at Amazon right now. We tested this set, and it did pretty well in our ratings, with decent high-definition picture quality. It was $10 cheaper last week, though.

32-Inch Sharp 720p Roku Smart TV, $150 at Best Buy
This is the Sharp LC-32LB601U. It was a better deal during Best Buy's Black Friday sale, when it sold for $100, and it was briefly $130. But this is still a decent price. 

39-Inch 1080p Insignia Amazon Fire TV Edition Smart TV, $230 at Amazon
This is the Insignia NS-39DF510NA19, a model that's available only at Amazon and Best Buy. It's now $20 cheaper than it was last week.

TV Deals on Midsized Sets

40-Inch Sharp 1080p TV, $150 at Walmart
This relatively basic HD set, the Sharp LC-40Q3070U, is now the same price as during the Best Buy Black Friday sale. And it's $180 at Best Buy right now.

40-Inch JVC 1080p Roku Smart TV, $180 at BJ's
This set is the JVC LT-40MAB588, and though it was supposed to be part of a one-day Green Monday sale for $170, it stayed at that price for more than a week. It's now costs $10 more. We don't see this set elsewhere, but the similar-sounding JVC LT-40MAT588 is part of a sale at Target for $180.

40-Inch Vizio 1080p Smart TV, $200 at Target
This is the Vizio D40f-G9, a model we tested. (It had excellent HD picture quality.) Note that it's about this same price at several retailers right now.

43-Inch LG 4K UHD Smart TV, $270 at Best Buy
We saw this set, the LG 43UK6090PUA, at several Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales for $270. It's a better deal here than anywhere else right now, by about $30. 

43-Inch Samsung 4K UHD Smart TV, $280 at Best Buy
This set, the Samsung UN43NU6900FXZA, was part of a one-day doorbuster deal for $278, and it's now priced at $280. This set is one worth owning. In our tests, it had very good picture quality and decent HDR performance. But this price is really only a few dollars cheaper than what you'll find elsewhere.

50-Inch Sharp 1080p Smart TV, $280 at Best Buy
This set, the Sharp LC-50LB601U, is a model we tested. Although many Sharp TVs have done well in our ratings, this one only had middling picture quality.

50-Inch Vizio 4K UHD Smart TV, $298 at Walmart
This TV, the Vizio D50x-G9, is available at Target for just $1 more. We didn't test this set, but it's an entry-level 4K model.

50-Inch Element 4K UHD Smart TV, $300 at Target
This is the Element E4SFT5017, from a brand that hasn't typically done that well in our ratings. We don't see this set, which we haven't tested, elsewhere right now.

50-Inch LG 4K UHD Smart TV, $330 at Best Buy
This is the LG 50UK6090PUA, the 50-inch version of a popular entry-level 4K series we've seen on-sale in other screen sizes. We tested this model and it did fairly well in our ratings.

55-Inch Westinghouse 4K UHD Smart TV, $300 at BJ's
This set is the Westinghouse WE55UJ4018 (although the retailer's ad called it the Westinghouse WE55UT4490). We don't see it elsewhere. We didn't test this set, but we did test the similarly named model and it didn't do too well in our ratings.

55-Inch Insignia 4K UHD Amazon Fire TV Smart TV, $330 at Best Buy
We saw this set, from Best Buy's Insignia house brand, at the same price as part of the retailer's Cyber Monday sale. It's at that price right now as one of the chain's daily doorbuster specials. We didn't test this set.

55-Inch Element 4K UHD Smart TV, $330 at Target
This is the Element E4SFT5517, a model we tested. (It did well for HD picture quality, but its UHD performance wasn't so hot.)  It's actually about $70 cheaper right now than a week ago.

55-Inch LG 4K UHD Smart TV, $400 at Best Buy
This is the LG 55UK6090PUA, the 55-inch version of a popular entry-level 4K series we've seen in other screen sizes. It's the same price at Target, more expensive elsewhere.

55-Inch Toshiba 4K UHD Amazon Fire TV Edition Smart TV, $380 at Best Buy
This set is the Toshiba 55LF621U19, a model that's currently in our ratings. (It did well for HD but not as great for UHD performance.) It's selling for about $20 more on Amazon right now, the only other place you can buy it.

55-Inch TCL 4K UHD Roku Smart TV, $350 at Amazon and Target
This model, the TCL 55S405, is a 2017 model. This matches the price we saw during Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales. The TV was only a so-so performer, though.

55-Inch Sharp 4K UHD Roku Smart TV, $400 at Best Buy
The Sharp LC-55LBU591U, a one-day doorbuster for $400 on Green Monday, is back again at that price. It's another Sharp Roku TV that's in our ratings. It did well for HD but not so hot for UHD performance.

58-Inch Sharp 4K UHD Roku Smart TV, $500 at Best Buy
This is the Sharp LC-58Q7370U. This set was just $380 a week ago, but it's still a decent price for a 4K set this size. We didn't test this model, though.

58-Inch Samsung 4K UHD Smart TV, $548 at Walmart
This isn't a bad price for a major-brand set this size, but it was $100 cheaper during Walmart's Black Friday sale. It's the Samsung UN58MU6070, a model we haven't tested. Unfortunately, it's currently out of stock at Walmart, but you can get it for $550 at Best Buy right now.

60-Inch RCA 4K UHD Smart TV, $400 at Walmart
This set is the RCA RTU6050, another TV we haven't tested, but RCA TVs haven't typically done very well in our ratings. We don't see it elsewhere, and at the moment the set is out of stock.

TV Deals on Bigger Sets

65-Inch Sharp 4K UHD TV, $480 at Walmart
This set is the Sharp LC-65Q6020U, a model we haven't tested. But it's $20 cheaper now than it was during Walmart's Cyber Monday sale. There's only a very limited number of sets left.

65-Inch Sharp 4K UHD Roku Smart TV, $500 at Best Buy
This set is the Sharp LC-65Q7370U, one of Monday's daily doorbusters at $500. This set is back at this price after jumping up to $600 last week.

65-Inch Vizio 4K UHD smart TV, $598 at Walmart
This is another entry-level 4K set, the Vizio D65x-G1. We didn't test this model. You can also get this set at Best Buy for about $2 more.

65-Inch LG 4K UHD Smart TV, $600 at Best Buy and Target
This set, called the LG 65UK6090PUA at Best Buy and just the LG 65UK6090 in the Target ad, is an entry-level 4K set.

65-Inch Vizio 4K UHD Smart TV, $700 at Best Buy and B&H Photo Video
This Vizio E65-F1 set is now $700 at most places that carry it. It's a model in Vizio's E series, which is just a step up from the company's entry-level D-series models. We didn't test this set.

70-Inch RCA 4K Smart TV, $600 at Walmart
This is the RCA RNSMU7036, $600 at Walmart. RCA TVs typically haven’t done very well in our TV ratings, but this is a very low price for a 70-inch set. It has a basic smart TV platform with access to a few streaming services, including Netflix and Vudu.

70-Inch Vizio 4K UHD Smart TV, $830 at Target
This is the Vizio E70-F3, in Vizio's E-series just above the entry-level D-series models.
